The intensity of Haslem’s workouts didn’t surprise Adebayo. The rookie has watched his work from afar and knew what to expect. “It’s not surprising because I watched the Miami Heat all the time when they won both championships with LeBron [James] and even the one that they won with D-Wade by himself,” Adebayo said. “UD was on all of them. You just see all his hard work, diving on the floor, making the hard plays. It shows his passion for the game.”
Olynyk said he has had the opportunity to hit the practice court with James Johnson, Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Adebayo and Hassan Whiteside, who apparently is becoming a fast friend. “He’s a great guy, a great character, a super nice guy,” he said of their encounters. “But he’s a beast. I’m really excited to play with him and be able to play with a guy of his size and his abilities on the floor, defensively, offensively, on the glass. He’s awesome to be around and [I’m] really looking forward to playing with him.”
The musical preference predates even the time with the Wildcats, the affinity made public on, of all things, college coach John Calipari’s personal website. “I mean,” Bam Adebayo said, “they just see a big dude that’s 6-10 and they think he’s listening to all the hip-hop and stuff like that. I just listen to my Katy Perry. It’s just her mood toward her music. She’s always happy and perky. So, I mean, I like to be happy. Might as well listen to happy music.”
